A coalition of electrical providers, trade groups and environmental organizations has formed a beneficial electrification chapter in Colorado to promote use of electricity where fossil fuels are currently used.
Two Colorado electrical co-operatives based in mountain towns have set out to build interest in electric vehicles. In Gunnison County, co-op members have the opportunity to borrow an EV for a week. In the Vail-Aspen area, Holy Cross plan to install faster-chargers to aid commuters interested in EVs.
Colorado will install fast-charging stations along highways to induce the transition to electrified vehicles. In Gunnison, you can even borrow an electric car.
Colorado’s PUC commissioners were told they must get ready for rapid adoption of electrified transportation—but also take steps to accelerate the adoption.
